I have a 1969 Lotus Elan S4. The handbrake is broken. I discovered one of the rods broke so bought a new rod. I also found that the linkage is bent. Need to repair it and the only way is to remove it.I can see that there is a bolt to remove but there seems to be no access to it without removing the body or at least unbolting and propping the rear of the body up. Was there ever access via a hole in the trunk or is there something I'm missing? I don't want to start drilling holes without getting some advice first. The bolt seems to be above the chassis plate and located behind the 2 bolts in the trunk next to the gas tank. Any ideas?
